Wyoming County Intl. Speedway – The Bullring
Horvatits gets second in a row while Bradshaw and Pierce get their first features of 2018
Press release for Wyoming Cnty.Intl. Speedway for 6/16/2018 By Dan Turner Speedway announcer.
We will start with the Big Dogs, the SST Modifieds. Zach Kosachook and the sorta rookie (his first full year campaigning a modified) Tommy Alloco would bring another great field of cars to green. Alloco would use the outside lane to power into the #1 position. Toad Bradshaw took full advantage of his fifth starting spot and leap froged past the Michielsen and Kluth rides before the first caution flew. This would put the Bradshaw #00 side by side with Alloco’s #6 machine.
Bradshaw would have to work at it but finally cleared the Alloco ride. About the half way mark was a huge wreck on the back straightaway. That saw the Alloco 6 hit and climb the wall after a lil contact from the charging #11 of the Rocket man Ricky Knapp. Alloco would come to a rest in turn 3 upright but with considerable damage. Also involved were the cars of Sherwood’s 96, Denny’s 22 and the Knapp 11 ride and he would return after a tire change. It was one of those nights that the entire field of modifieds were all very comparable in speed and handling.
As Majchrzak and Knapp really had their hands full working thru the competition. With a handful of laps remaining, Bradshaw had the #1 and 2 in points breathing down his neck. Brother Bro Bradshaw and Steve Fuchs, both having a good night. Toad wanted a good restart and needed Bro and Fuchs to do some side by side battling to hold up the !4 of Majchrzak and the 11 of Knapp, and that’s is what he got.
With 3 laps remaining Majchrzak cleared the #0 and #4 and started to try to run down the leading Bradshaw. It was to no avail. Bradshaw would pick up his first victory in 2018 and only second in his modified racing career. Majchrzak was second and rebounding after an earlier wreck, Knapp took home the third place check.
All rookie front row for the SST Super Stocks feature event. Kory Lanni and Frank Kline had control of the field as the green flew. Lanni used his pole position starting spot to jump out front early. Kline was hung to the outside and the freight train was moving Kline in the wrong direction. As the racers settled in it was again tough for 2 time winner Zack Meyers to get thru traffic.
Meyers looking to capitalize on the missing Mark Loveland (point leader) not racing tonight. Mike Scrappy Chenaille would lead for a bit, Erie Hastreiter would also get his chance to lead. Hastreiter would open a full straightaway advantage over the rest of the field till his dreaded yellow would fly and move the Meyers 17 to his outside for a restart. Meyers slipped past and that brought the Horvatits #4 machine with him.
With only 3 laps remaining it appeared Mayers was en route to win #3 for 2018. Joe Horvatits had other plans. Horvatits worked his way to the side of Meyer and after a lil paint swapping, Horvatits put the Stealth black missile out front to collect his second feature in as many weeks. Meyers second and Hastreiter rounded out the top 3.
Sickles and Mike Bradshaw were the pole sitters for the 4 cylinders. Bradshaws’s lite compact CRX vs Sickles Pontiac Sunfire. Bradshaw would use the weight advantage to scoot out front and try to hang on with all the big guns starting behind him.
It wasn’t long that perennial front-runner Jimmy Pierce Jr was in hot pursuit. Pierce a 2016 regular took the lead and it was no looking back. Dave Heims had nothing for the buffalo area racer. Last weeks winner, Brian Johnson lost a head gasket on the Neon Green #85 Acura. Johnson sprinted home dug out the weathered old Ellipse and drove it to a respectable 4th place finish to keep in the end of the year point chase.
It was Aloha night at the speedway and the 7x vintage car of Terry Wilson took the honors in that class dispute losing the brakes on the old coupe.
